DNA Results R1b-M269
Wikitree profile for Jim Beers claims he is a patrilineal descendant of Zachariah Paddock (father of Capt. Judah). Jim states he has taken a Y-DNA 67 marker STR test at Family Tree DNA and FTDNA predicts he falls under R1b-M269.
Additional testing needed
Additional testing is needed to verify and refine the haplogroup of the Paddock family.
- As of 20 Oct 2020 Family Tree DNA does not have a Paddock (etc.) surname DNA Project, but has 37 kits associated with the Paddock (exact spelling) surname.
